Common Boating Injuries
People suffer a variety of serious injuries when boats collide, primarily due to the speed and size of the watercrafts, combined with the fact that these accidents occur out on open water. Furthermore, passengers and drivers are unrestrained in boats, leading to significant movement when collisions happen. While there are supposed to be flotation devices on boats in case of emergency, many operators fail to take this precaution into account. As a result, wrongful death may occur in a boating accident, not only due to the injuries themselves but also due to drowning.
Injuries and death can come about in any number of ways, including:
- Propeller injuries
- Fire and explosion
- Rough waters or wake
- Impact with sandbars
- Collisions with other boats
- Slip and fall/man overboard
- Collisions with docks or piers
- Defective watercraft or equipment
- Contact with submerged structures
- Falls from heights (such as a second story on the boat)
- Defective life jackets, floatation devices, or safety gear
